Acclaimed violinist Emil Altschuler is a master of his instrument who performs with incredible technique, magnificent expression and a profound artistry across a wide-ranging repertoire.

The Strad praises “Passion and portamento from a young American violinist”, and The Whole Note writes “There’s a decidedly old-style feel to…very reminiscent of Heifetz.” Erick Friedman, master violinist and protégé of the legendary Jascha Heifetz, wrote “…a truly outstanding violinist of his generation…and sound and accuracy of intonation that are truly extraordinary.”

He received his Bachelor of Music from The Juilliard School where he studied with Dorothy DeLay and Naoko Tanaka, and his Masters of Music from The Yale School of Music, studying under Erick Friedman. Mr. Altschuler released his debut album “Emil Altschuler – Violin,” arranged with his brother Josiah Altschuler, with a gypsy jazz style guitar accompaniment.

He is also a featured artist on Josiah Altschuler’s debut album ‘Murder Ballads and Love Songs for Cello and Voice.’ Emil also recorded “Diablo y Tango” with guitar, which included works by de Falla and Piazzolla, and which was selected by renowned author and violin pedagogue Janice Tucker Rhoda for ‘The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginner’ Books 1 and 3, published by Carl Fischer Music. Emil Altschuler’s latest live recording with Thomas Pandolfi was featured on NPR from the Honest Brook Music Festival.

He also recently recorded a contemporary unaccompanied Partita by Christopher Marinuzzi and an album with pianist Keunyoung Sun, including Falla, Ravel, Albeniz, Poulenc, Bartok featuring brilliant works for violin & piano, performed with stunning virtuosity. This recording has been featured on NPR, HJCK in Bogotá, Colombia and broadcast on MDR KLASSIK in Halle, Germany. His next recording project is a Gershwin album of transcriptions by Jascha Heifetz.
